Long Like me the way I don’t fit into Dad’s brand new family or in the leftover one composed of Mom and my older brother Mama’s Boy MuhammadAlso there’s Jeremy and me Misfits Because although alliteratively speaking Janna and Jeremy sound good together we don’t go together. This was such a great contemporary with the right amount of fluff heavier topics and diversityI actually was not expecting this book to handle such heavy topics like rape sexual assault but I felt like that really added a lot to the story and made it even poignantI was also very excited to read this for the Muslim rep that I d heard was overall uite accurate I recommend reading ownvoices reviews like May s Em s and Jiana s to see how accurate they thought the rep was since I m not Muslim and cannot comment on that Janna was a very well fleshed out character and I enjoyed reading the from her perspective She had a strong personality and was the exact opposite of a boring flat protagonist She was so three dimensional and real with flaws and doubts that made her human and seeing her grow throughout the story was beautifulDespite handling heavier topics this book was uite cute and fluffy Fluff books are either hit or miss with me and this one was definitely a hit I mean I totally called the love interest and so did everyone else probably but it s okay because I 100% ship it Empowerment was a huge thing in this book and I LOVE how it was tackled Janna grows to become an even stronger character and has the courage to speak up about what happened to her despite fearing what people would think at first She learned that she has to take action for herself and that was so so beautiful to see especially in a novel aimed towards today s teensThis is a very underrated yet important book so I hope to see people picking it up soon The character development and themes of empowerment were truly beautiful and not only is it a significant book but also a really fun and enjoyable one Listening Woman by Tony Hillerman Summary & Study Guide uite accurate I recommend reading ownvoices reviews like May s Em s and Jiana s to see how accurate they thought the rep was since I m not Muslim and cannot comment on that Janna was a very well fleshed out character and I enjoyed reading the from her perspective She had a strong personality and was the exact opposite of a boring flat protagonist She was so three dimensional and real with flaws and doubts that made her human and seeing her grow throughout the story was beautifulDespite handling heavier topics this book was The White Nights of Ramadan uite cute and fluffy Fluff books are either hit or miss with me and this one was definitely a hit I mean I totally called the love interest and so did everyone else probably but it s okay because I 100% ship it Empowerment was a huge thing in this book and I LOVE how it was tackled Janna grows to become an even stronger character and has the courage to speak Beyond the Pale up about what happened to her despite fearing what people would think at first She learned that she has to take action for herself and that was so so beautiful to see especially in a novel aimed towards today s teensThis is a very The Black Ice Score (Parker, underrated yet important book so I hope to see people picking it The Black Painting up soon The character development and themes of empowerment were truly beautiful and not only is it a significant book but also a really fun and enjoyable one

Summary Saints Misfits Monster and Mayhem

Saints Misfits Monster and Mayhem

8 Hours and 5 MinutesThere are three kinds of people in my world1 Saints those special people moving the world forward Sometimes you glaze over them Or at least I do They’re in your face so much you can’t see them like how you can’t see your nose2 Misfits people who don’t be. wow who knew this book was going to be such a breath of fresh air and at the same time hold an incredible emotional burdentw sexual assault to be honest i think the best way to write this review is just tell you what i loved and what i hated because me jumping into this expecting some great muslim rep a cute contemporary did not prepare me and it made my reading experience so much better the good this was so rich in culture i loved the close knit family dynamic that is so present in our culture today the family rep and the various perspectives given i related so much to the experiences that the characters shared together despite not sharing the exact same culture comes to show how we can all find some connection if a story covers it properly which this book definitely did muslim rep I LOVED IT done so so well except for a few things which i shall explain in my hate section i loved the connections between each character and asdfdfsdl i was so happy to find this rep characters janna i found myself liking her as the book went on her thoughts and emotions are portrayed in a very natural and realistic way not a thou must be pious and be as pious as me or on the other hand let me rebel against my religion which i adored she was the perfect in between fizz she has a very strong religious connection while still being funny and living her life without limiting herself at all which is so easy to relate to muhammad i ve alwaysss wanted an older brother so you can imagine how much i loved his character nuah YES YES YES 1000% YES you already know i was shipping him had janna like nothing else he was funny that s so important get yo head in the game janna you re missing out saint sarah tbh despite janna thinking she was the most annoying girl on the planet sarah was actually one of my favs soon lee SUCH A FIERCE UEEN that needed a lot coverage therefore i have not much to write for her sorry to let you down soon lee sausan she was a NIABI this was the rep that has been missing i loved it i also have the most respect for niabis especially in this day age all in all the characters were done extremely well what i m going to mention below is not exactly a spoiler bc it s a trigger warning as well as happening in the 2nd chapter but don t read it if you don t wanna janna is sexually assaulted my her best friend s cousin who also happens to be hafiz memorizer of the Holy uran so naturally everyone thinks he could never do something like that guys this was SO important so so so important recently i ve seen news stories where imams leaders of mosues molest young girls this is not a representation of an entire religion but it happens and the fact that the author managed to craft such a heartbreaking and raw story around this topic literally gave it all the stars it was so real and emotional and made me relate to janna even because I can only imagine what it s like to have nobody believe you to have someone who is regarded as a saint to the rest of your community to have done something so violating it s a lot to digest the bad okay y all i am not in any way saying that muslim girls are not allowed to have crushes on non muslim guys okay or vice versa the difference is that guys can end up marrying non muslim girls while the other way is not permitted i m not trying to preach anything here just stating the facts that should have been at the very least discussed by an ownvoices author who was advertising and delivering on in most aspects muslim rep regarding the next point when a girl wears a hijab it is a commitment however i am not degrading or demoralizing anyone who chooses to take it off because it is not in my place to judge so what was the issue janna has a crush on a guy named jeremy janna has an all female gym class in which she takes off her hijab jeremy walks in sees janna without hijab janna is aware of this fact and still resumes to sit there and gawk at him and you know who ends up reminding her that she is uncovered HER TEACHER who pronounces the word as hajeeb and then janna gets embarrased not even because she wasn t wearing her hijab but because HER TEACHER EMBARRASSED HER in front of the whole class specifically JEREMY i would be fine by this i would have waved it off but here is the deal the next few days she begins to condition her hair and plan on leaving it out purposefully because she wants to look good for jeremy Jeremy tells the gym teacher he needs to practice softball during the female gym class and once again the gym teacher mshajeeb is the one who calls janna and tells her to wear her hijab to class but janna takes the wide opportunity to not wear it and is once again embarrased that she was called out on it by mshajeeb and when there is a supply teacher she is ecstatic because that means she doesn t have to wear her hijab I just don t understand why this was necessary why it had to be about janna taking off her hijab to what make jeremy like her in conclusion my personal opinion is the author should have known better than to elaborate on jeremy and janna s relationship in the way that she did using the plot that she did it was unnecessary for them to meet just so they could feed chickadees despite my little rant don t let it take you away from this book it was really cute good and still holds the strongest message at the roots The Black Painting uran so naturally everyone thinks he could never do something like that guys this was SO important so so so important

    This is the first contemporary I’ve read with a muslim main character and damn I was excited as heck but also so fricken worried that it would show a bad representation of islam The first thing I think all people need to understand is that the religion of islam is perfect but muslims are not We all have faults and its not about judging and
